    Hi I'm going to watch the video but wanted to ask about some of the instructions. This is a detox for skin I assume? I've been looking into uses of the charcoal but it is kinda vague on what you shouldn't do. I am on a lot of meds and have one kidney, so I am aware that if you ingest it, it absorbs the good and bad subs in the digestive tract. But I haven't seen much of what it can do for skin. I've used as a mask with salt, but my kidney speciealist told me turmeric will stain and doesnt do alot..she is Indian and said it is a culture thing to use it and she had not seen much results. Do you have any specific suggestions for using these and can the charcoal be affective without oils? Thanks Sarah

    The skin is our largest organ. With this said detoxing the skin removes those toxins absorbed by the skin. Turmeric does stain light skin, but is fine for darker or yellower skin. If you have light skin omit the turmeric layers. Activated charcoal can be used with just water to make a paste- no oils or anything else needed.

    Sorry for the delayed responce!

    Yes, all this stuff about "detoxing" this and that is nonsense. You have your liver and kidneys to do that. If you want to soak in all that stuff because you find it enjoyable or relaxing, fine.

    Hate to break it to you, but the kidney detoxifies the whole body.
    So just drink water to be detoxified
